Utopia is a place where everything is perfect. It's like paradise, but can never be real because all aspects of a perfect world can never actually be obtained. There will always be something disagreeable whether it be socially, or in the government, or the laws in which they rule by.

We tend to use the word to mean a kind of earthly, unattainable paradise; a Utopian dream is an impractical but attractive idea, for instance. In fact the word is has a Greek root and literally means "no place." It was coined by Sir Thomas More in 1516, and used as the title for his famous work of fiction (sometimes described as the first science fiction novel) of the same name. More's Utopia is a mythical land where there is no poverty and no great wealth. Gold and silver are used only as ornaments or to indicate slavery (slavery itself is a punishment for crime.) Everybody works, but not too hard, and everybody studies. Religious differences are tolerated. While not necessarily perfect. More intended his satire to offer a better society than his own, and the word Utopia has been used ever since to describe an imaginary society that the author thinks would be better than an existing one.
